60th Anniversary Pressed Coin Collection
FUN Collections with a Special Focus

Cast Membership has its privileges!

Pirates of the Caribean Cast Member coin CM0005All Disneyland Cast Member and Special Event pressed pennies or elongated coin souvenirs known to date are listed in this reference guide. Most all of these coins, by definition, required paid admission to a special event or Cast Member privileges at the Disneyland Resort to access the machine(s) or to obtain a coin listed here. Advanced collectors may also want to include the extremely hard to find DS Disneyland Arcade Shop coins as a key addition to the Cast Member issues listed in this guide section. There may also be references to Cast Member or Special Event elongated coins in the "Disneyland Resort Elongated Coin Test Rolls Guide ".

If you are just starting to collect Disneyland pressed coins, do keep in mind that because of the limited distribution of coins in this group, the collection will not be as easy to complete as say The Lands Collection. However, in this author’s opinion, that’s good news. Because these are harder to find special coins, they are appreciated by both the novice and the advanced collector. Many non-collectors that have attended the represented events or worked at the park, will find these mementos of interest as well. What a great way to inspire a conversation about Disneyland special events, Cast Members, and of course, pressed pennies!

The CM Guide is only one section of the Complete Collection of Disneyland Resorts Elongated Coins. Additional elongated coins are listed in the respective guides linked above.

Happy collecting,
Boomer and The Folks at ParkPennies.com

CM0001 Retired Ron Dominguez pressed penny image. RON DOMINGUEZ, Ronald K. Dominguez portrait, DISNEYLAND ® , star border. Coin commemorates Ron Dominguez’s retirement August 31, 1994 and was the first coin ever made to celebrate the retirement of a Cast Member. For a short time around Mr. Dominguez's retirement, Cast Members could press this coin for free backstage. No backstamp. The number of coins pressed can not be determined because the machine was free to Cast Members back stage and not metered. However, a quantity of zinc cents were pressed in advance for distribution at the retirement party. Reports to ParkPennies.com suggest the die was presented to Mr. Dominguez as one of his retirement gifts. A red handkerchief, signifying The Order of the Red Handkerchief was also presented to retirement attendees and is sometimes found accompanying the Cast Member pressed penny.

Editor's note: We are often reminded that the preferred numismatic term is "Elongated Coins". However, as the rebellious, risk taking, devil may care ParkPennies.com contributors that we are, temptation often gets the better of us. As a result, you may see the more casual, fun terms like: pressed pennies, pressed nickels, pressed dimes, pressed quarters, smashed pennies, flattened pennies, crushed pennies, squashed pennies, rolled pennies, mashed pennies, stamped pennies, smushed pennies, stretched pennies, memory pennies, keepsake pennies, flattened pennies, and souvenir coin medallions to describe these fun pressed coin souvenirs. :-)
